Do porcelain veneers look natural?

Porcelain veneers are a versatile cosmetic dental treatment that can beautifully restore the appearance of your smile. Dental porcelain is a material that very closely resembles natural tooth enamel, allowing veneers to blend in perfectly with your natural teeth.

If you look at your teeth, you will notice that they have a translucent quality that allows them to absorb light. Porcelain has the same appearance, which is why they look so natural. We can also color-match veneers to your teeth so that they blend seamlessly with surrounding teeth.

Our patients love porcelain veneers because they are designed to resolve a number of cosmetic dental flaws - cracks or chips, gaps, uneven teeth, severely stained teeth and more. Veneers can even mask the appearance of teeth with minor alignment issues, a fact that has earned them the nickname of “instant orthodontics.”

Veneers are ultra-thin slices of porcelain that are bonded securely to the surface of your teeth. Placing veneers is a fairly simple process that usually requires only two visits to our office.

If you’re tired of flaws in your smile and are ready to make a change, please contact our office. We would love to make an appointment for a consultation to discuss the ways that porcelain veneers can benefit you.
